About me:

I’ve been interested in dogs since I was a kid, I just love dogs.  My first dog was an American Cocker bitch, Champion and my first BIS winner. We’ve had Champion Afghan Hounds and English Cockers as well. Today we only have Old English Sheepdogs under the kennel name Reata.  The OES’s that we bred have won their championships all over the World, including World, European, English, American, Australian championships and champions in almost every European country!


We have BIS winners in Europe, South and North America, RBIS at European Dog Show, Group Winners both at the World and European Shows, WD and two times AOM at the American National, two times BIS at the Euro-OES Show, BOB at Crufts  etc. Our last big result was with an OES from our breeding who won Group 2nd at the World Dog Show 2021. We achieved all that never having more than five adults at home.


I’ve been judging dogs for almost 35 years, and I am approved by the Croatian KC and FCI as an all-round judge. I have judged so far in Argentina, Austria, Australia, Bosnia and |Herzegovina, Canada, China, Croatia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Honduras, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, USA and Yugoslavia. In 2019 I’ve judged BIS on 6 continents including BIS at Sydney Royal.


I am very proud that I am first Croatian judge who gave CC’s in UK.  


In 2014 I received an Award for lifetime achievement in breeding from Croatian KC.


Author of many articles about dogs in different magazines, I have given lectures about dogs to different audiences, from beginners to judge’s organizations.


I am married, have 2 wonderful kids, have Master’s degree in computer sciences, and still breeding OES.
